“Our destiny changes with our thought; we shall become what we wish to become, do what we wish to do, when our habitual thought corresponds with our desire.” – Orison Swett Marden

Thinking as a Habit
While tackling this subject it occurred to us that there are many subtle angles we should undertake as we go through it. There is the concept of thinking through a problem, which is to come up with multiple solutions for solving some issue we are dealing with and there is the overall “flavor” of our thinking from a habitual standpoint- whether it’s positive or negative. Both of these things are significant and both of them are of supreme importance in regard to the responses we get through The Law of Attraction and intuition.
Most people don’t give their ability to think- much thought. If you look around, you’ll notice that people in general don’t concern themselves with sitting down on a daily basis and thinking of multiple solutions to whatever they want changed in their life. It’s also true that most people really don’t take the time to dismantle negative observations and beliefs and replace them with positive, empowering ones. What we have come here to convey to you today is that both of these efforts have more to do with habits we develop and practice than any amount of intellectual horsepower, and that’s good!
If we go to the convenience store each morning to buy a coffee on the way to work, in short order we find ourselves driving there automatically. We often will make the same brew the same way because we know what we like. Most of us take the same way to and from work or school each day, that’s a habit. Often we have a certain order of things we do to get ready in the morning and when we brush our teeth is usually right after some other thing we do and just before yet another- and all of these almost seem like we developed a little checklist we go by. We have so many little tiny routines like these and they are the habits we often live by. How many of us really give much thought at all to our habitual styles of thinking or how changing our thinking habits could have us end up in a dramatically better place in very little time?
If we hear that some sort of rumor about how our company is cutting back, how many of us are in the habit of getting excited about the new opportunities that will create? When we hear that a shortage of wheat has driven up the price of bread, how many of us explore how we might be better off because of it? If our spouse gets into an argument with us and gets upset, how many people look at this as a chance to become closer than ever? So-called “bad news” happens to everyone, but most people just let bad news exist and stink up the joint. That does not have to be you, however. Between negative thinking habits and positive thinking habits, you are free to develop positive thinking habits. You have a choice!
Question of the Day to Ask Ourselves
“Do I turn negative input into something positive as a matter of habit?”
